Cayuga Lake is the highlight of this ride with historic markers posted along the route that help tell the story of the area from the Cayuga Nation villages to the 1779 Sullivan Expedition.

With Emerson Park at the north and Fillmore Glen State Park at the south end of the route, this ride around Owasco Lake is one of the easiest and picturesque around a Finger Lake.

Filmore Glen State Park

1686 St. Rte. 38
Moravia, NY 13118
(315) 497-0130

Named for U.S. President Millard Fillmore, Fillmore Glen State Park is located adjacent to Moravia, in Cayuga County. A replica of the log cabin in which President Fillmore was born is located within the park.

Fillmore Glen State Park, an oasis of cool, dense woods crowding into a long narrow gorge offers spectacular views, unique geological formations, including five waterfalls, and a botanically rich glen.  The park has 70 campsites, a stream-fed swimming pool and fishing in the Owasco Lake inlet.  There are several little shops and eateries nestled throughout the Village of Moravia to enjoy. In the winter, hiking, cross-country skiing and snowmobiling are permitted on unplowed roads. The gorge trails are closed in winter. Deer hunting is permitted in season.

The Centers for Nature Education, Inc. was originally formed as Onondaga Nature Centers in 1966.

 Onondaga Nature Centers was instrumental in developing the Beaver Lake Nature Center, which is now an Onondaga County Park, and the Cayuga Nature Center in Ithaca, which was turned over to another private organization in 1982.

Our name was changed to Centers for Nature Education after we turned the Beaver Lake Nature Center over to Onondaga County for management.
